Sayyed Nasrallah says to expand war front if Israel escalates aggression against Lebanon, Gaza

Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah has warned it would expand the anti-Israel front in the south if the occupying regime escalated it acts of aggression against the Lebanese territory and the Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks in a televised speech at a ceremony held by the Lebanese resistance movement in honor of Lebanon’s wounded and captured resistance fighters. The speech was broadcast live from the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on Tuesday.

Nasrallah praised the sacrifices of resistance fighters and said, “The wounds and blood have generated real achievements for our people and our country.”

“Our responsibility is to preserve these achievements.”

On Israel’s months-long savagery in the besieged Gaza Strip and the regime’s sporadic shelling of southern Lebanon, the Hezbollah chief said, “The existence of Israel is a disaster for the entire region and a fearful and deterred Israel represents a less dangerous and harmful situation for the people of the region.”

“In light of what is happening in Gaza, the Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian, and Egyptian national interests require that Israel emerge from this battle defeated and broken.”

Nasrallah said the exchanges of fire in Lebanon’s south would stop when the aggression against Gaza stops. “The resistance’s job is to deter the enemy, and our responses will be proportionate.”

“Whoever threatens us with expansion of the war, we threaten them similarly; and whoever thinks Lebanon’s resistance is – even for a single moment – in fear or confused is completely mistaken.”

“The resistance today is stronger in its determination to confront the enemy,” Nasrallah stated.

The Hezbollah chief said hundreds of thousands of Israeli settlers already displaced from the north of the occupied territories would not be able to return to settlements in case of an escalation and an expansion of war zone.
